I love to paw furiously on things like mirrors, glass fireplace screens , cabinets and doors. Oh it's such a delight to stand on your back paws (or when I really get into it, I sit down - so I can concentrate) and let those paws fly with purpose.
when I would paw at the bathroom mirror, my parents thought it was
because I was trying to attack the “other” cat I saw in the reflection.
Ridiculous, of course I know it’s my own reflection. I’m not pawing to
attack or pet myself as they think; I’m making my cat music. Of course I recognize myself, I’m adorable. Who else would it
My parents have titled my cat music “That Racket.” I
think it's a catchy title. They’ll say things like, “Is that you making
That Racket?” or “Quit making That Racket in there, little cat!” I
think they really like my song because sometimes they clap their hands
loudly and try to sing along with their own lyrics like “Hey, knock off
That Racket,” or “I’m coming over there if you don’t knock off That
Racket, little cat.” I really like that they come up with their own
lyrics, and try to clap along, although they don’t seem to be on-key or
to be very good with the rhythm, but I love them for trying.
admit that I sometimes get so involved playing “That Racket” against a
door that I will shut it with my pawing, effectively locking myself in a
room for hours on end. I realize I should probably pay attention to the
direction that the door swings, before I start pawing in earnest, but
really, who thinks of things like that when the rhythm takes them?
Meg - My girl still likes to lay down tracks, anycat wanna join a band?
